On Thursday 27th September, we held our first musical events of the term with the Harvest celebrations. In the morning the Early Years and Key Stage 1 children beautifully sang harvest themed songs and very confidently recited the poems they had learned. It was lovely to see so many parents joining us for the event and Reverend Kathy from St Johns Church helped us all to appreciate how fortunate we are to have the produce we enjoy.
In the afternoon, the older child gave their harvest performance and, once again, sang and performed their poems with confidence. This included a break with tradition in Year 5 where a class rap was very confidently delivered. Reverend Kathy used the children to bring the Parable of the Sower to life and reminded us all that sadly there are so many people locally and nationally who struggle for food. We are, therefore, very grateful for the many donations to the foodbank collection and proud that the West Lodge community can help local people. Thank you to everyone who so generously contributed items which were taken by the School Council to the foodbank.
